We got an update on GUS this week! He went up North to a foster in West Chicago and she fell in love and she ADOPTED him! She says “He’s a happy boy! He’s a shy guy who definitely prefers me, and is a chicken. He loves all the dogs and loves to play. He’s a goofy boy!
Warning: some photos may be a little graphic HAA volunteers responded to a call of a dog in need of care today. This sweet boy had a lead wrapped around his leg and did not want to be touched. His leg was injured, and he was obviously in pain. Volunteers were able to get him to Old Hatchie Vet Clinic (thank you, Dr. Pulse!) to be looked at. His leg is now free of the cord, and he will be kept overnight so Dr. Pulse can re-evaluate in the morning once some swelling goes down. Right now we are hoping...
A New Beginning
There’s a Vietnamese proverb that says, “When eating fruit, remember the one who planted the tree.” Our hearts are full of gratitude and we want to say Thank You. 2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but despite it all our supporters were so very generous with their donations that we were able to finish the shelter and buy a new van. So many other donations in between helped with our daily operating expenses for the health and happiness of our dogs. We cannot do what we do without you, and we are profoundly grateful. If you are interested in...
Marie Warren Hadley
HAA extends heartfelt sympathy to our volunteer Ken Hadley. Ken is steadfast in his work to see us move into the new shelter! Marie, and her partner and best friend, Ken Hadley, spent most of the last 20 years fostering and caring for the animals of Hardeman County. They sheltered as many as 15 at a time at their home, held fundraisers there on the farm, and participated in most, if not all, events for the shelter. Ken uses his heavy equipment to mow, clear, and level the land at both the old and new shelters. Marie enthusiastically supported all...
So Doggone Close!
Thanks to YOU-we are one giant step closer to our new shelter! We know it’s not easy waiting to see donation results, so here is what happened in the last couple of weeks. Thanks for having faith in us! If you would like to donate, go to paypal.me/haadogs.
HAA has launched a capital campaign in order to raise the remaining funds we need to get moved in before the end of 2019. Our goal was to raise $60,000, and in the past month, we have already brought in over $11,000 of that! However, we still need funds, supplies, and volunteers to get us moved in. If you or your business can donate money, supplies, or time, please contact a volunteer. One of our immediate needs is 6 foot tall chain link fencing. We will also need extra volunteers at the new and old shelters the week that we make our...
